United for Health Justice
We won’t stop until everyone has what they need to be healthy, and our health system is shaped by and accountable to all people.
We need a health system that:
Puts people over profit
We deserve a health system that puts people’s health above all else — whether it’s about making sure everyone has access to affordable preventive care or keeping hospitals staffed with enough nurses. But too often, profit drives decisions, and that comes at the expense of people, families, and communities. It’s time to shift that imbalance and make people’s health, not profit, the north star of our health system.
Addresses structural racism and other inequities
We deserve a health system that ensures everyone gets the care they need and is treated with dignity and respect — and that no one is discriminated against because of their race, gender identity, age, disability, immigration status, or income. But, the US health system is entrenched in inequity, with systemically excluded communities dealing with significantly worse health outcomes and experience in care. That’s why we’re developing bold policy changes and strategies rooted in the leadership and perspective of the people most harmed by the health system today.
Is responsive and accountable to people
We deserve a health system that works for all people and embraces the central role that community leaders and organizations must play in shaping decisions about the coverage and care people get. A more responsive and accountable health system will mean better coverage, better care, and better health. To get there, we are working with partners across the country to build community engagement and organizing initiatives designed to make the health industry and policymakers more attuned to what people want and need — and more accountable for making it happen.
